The farmhouse is a vernacular 1+12-story wood-frame building, with a gable roof and a hip-roof porch with small gables over its access stairs. The wellhouse is a small wood-frame structure with a hip roof; the storm cellar is an earthen structure, mostly below ground, with a small above-ground access building. The barn is a transverse crib wood-frame structure with a gable roof. The farmstead was developed about 1910, and is a little-altered example of an early 20th-century farmstead. [2]
